Sweetsation Therapy’s Precious Anti-Aging Facial Oil

Share Button


2015-12-20 14.26.27

Hi Friends

I recently had the opportunity to try out a new facial oil from a company I have worked with before, Sweetsation Therapy.  It is an organic anti-aging facial oil loaded with natural quality ingredients such as Argan Oil and Vitamin C.

This Facial Oil comes beautifully packaged with a practical eye dropper style lid.
It has a subtle rose scent because of the Rose Hip Oil in it.
The recommendations say to apply 3-5 drops to face.  I found that 2 did the trick for me as a little goes a long way.  This means that this 30mL bottle will last for awhile.
I apply it as my moisturizer step in my skin care routine, after cleansing, exfoliation and perfecting. It absorbs very well into my skin with no oily residue.

2015-12-21 13.08.18
This formula is organic and so is very gentle on your skin.  I had no irritation with use.  The main ingredient is organic argan oil which is a very versatile oil used to moisture hair skin and nails.
I was very pleased with this quality product and feel it is a great value.

Embrace Your Face ~ CoverGirl

Share Button

Hi Friends

I recently had the opportunity to review a product from CoverGirl’s new Embrace Your Face campaign at no cost, courtesy of CoverGirl.

I choose the TruBLEND foundation in Classic Ivory.

2015-11-16 19.32.40TruBLEND boasts that you will get a perfect skin tone match with seamless blending.  With 14 shades to choose from, you are bound to find the right shade for you.

The first thing I noticed was the bottle.  I love the design.  It is very eye catching and the dispensing pump is so handy.  It dispenses just the right amount right onto my makeup applicator or hand.

I use a sponge blender when applying my make up for best coverage and blending results.

Now I have to admit that I am not usually a fan of a liquid foundation. I always found it looked fake or caked on my skin.  They always felt heavy and left me feeling greasy.

2015-11-17 21.44.20-2I have to say, TruBLEND exceeded all of my expectations.  The foundation went on flawlessly and felt very light on my skin.  I actually forgot I was wearing it.

The finish on my face made me feel “air brushed”.  I had a perfectly even skin tone that was bright and natural looking.

Since trying TruBLEND, I wear it regularly and am pleased with the results. I have had compliments on my skin and it gives a much more polished look once I have applied my make up.

There are no unpleasant odours and my skin has not reacted in any negative way.  I have had no break outs like I have had with other liquid make up.

TruBLEND is a great option for women looking for a  natural and flawless look.  It really blends well to match your skin tone.

If you would like to learn more, you can visit the truBLEND info page on CoverGirl’s website here http://www.covergirl.ca/en_CA/face-makeup/foundation-makeup/liquid-foundation

Beauty By Earth ~ Beauty with a Conscience

Share Button

2015-12-01 17.32.45Hi Friends

Recently, I had the opportunity to review products from a company called Beauty by Earth. I am excited to share with you what I learned by using their products.

They feature eco-friendly packaging, natural, organic and vegan products with no chemicals added.

I love that this company takes eco responsibility to a whole new level.  You can feel the quality in their products and see the results for  yourself.

On their website, this phrase caught my eye and resonated “inspire beauty, naturally”.

2015-12-01 18.14.16The first product I tried was the lip balm.

I love a good lip balm, especially in winter when I suffer from dry, chapped and peeling lips.

I always have lip balm on hand because I constantly feel the need to reapply it.

This lip balm is the softest I have ever tried!  It glides on smoothly and stays put.  I find I do not need to apply that often as my lips feel soft all day.

Can I also mention the flavours? My favourite is the Vanilla Bean, followed by Asian Pear but they also have Green Tea, Goji Berry, Grapefruit Pomengranite, Honey and Peppermint.

I was also happy to find there was an unflavoured option for my hubby who also suffers from chapped lips but does not want any flavour.

2015-12-01 19.29.25-12015-12-01 19.29.27-4The next product I tried was the toner.

It has witch hazel and aloe in it which cleanses and soothes.

I love the smell of it thanks to the rosewater.

This toner is gentle and effective, providing a deep clean without irritating my skin.

It also pulls double duty as an effective make up remover.

It comes in a traditional bottle with a flip lid and a round bottle with a spray cap which is perfect for using as a refresher throughout the day.

2015-12-01 19.29.27-2The Argan Oil is 100% organic and pure.

There is no filler and it shows in the difference in quality between it and argan “hair treatments” I have tried that contained many different chemicals.

A little drop goes a long way with this formula.  One drop will work through my long hair after a shower or cover my whole face after cleansing.

You can also use Argan Oil on your hands to keep them soft and smooth no matter how dry and cold the weather gets.

2015-12-01 19.29.27-1The konjac sponge pack of two comes with a white sponge that is 100% konjac and a black sponge that contains 99% konjac and 1% charcoal for acne prone skin.

These sponges are well made and work very effectively.  You do need to soak them prior to their first use for up to a minute.  The best part of these sponges is that they are biodegradable as compost.

I also got to try their amazing mask, facial sunscreen and sunscreen.

This company has really wowed me.  I will continue to order from them in the future.  I love that the products are natural.  These are beauty products  I can feel good about using.  They are good for my skin and the environment.

Best Bronze Self Tanning Spray Review

Share Button

2015-11-08 21.27.232015-11-08 21.28.27

Hi Friends

As you know, I am a 38 year old Ginger with pale skin and freckles.  Needless to say, I have tried many self tanning products over the years in search of one that would give my skin a natural looking, sun kissed golden glow.  I have found that with my pale skin, every little streak shows if I miss a spot and more often than not I end up looking like an oompa loompa.  Nobody wants that!
When I got the opportunity to review Best Bronze self tanning spray, I was a bit hesitant in fear that I would be disappointed once again.  I did not need to worry!
This self tanner sprays on quite evenly for a nice golden tan.

2015-11-19 15.50.47This is my usually tanslucent leg 24 hours after application under flourescent lighting.  If you look, you can see a golden hue has replaced my usual Casper appearance.
When I first received the package, I was really impressed with how nice it appeared and how lovely it smelled!  It came in the adorable bag you see above with all the lovely goodies inside.
The pre and post tan soaps smell incredible and they do a great job on your skin.  The pre-tan is a great exfoliant to remove any dead skin and leave your body fresh and clean for the spray.
When applying the spray, it is quite simple.  Just spray evenly over the areas you want to look tan and wait about 3 minutes.  Your skin is dry enough to get dressed.  In about 3 hours, you will see your final result.  If it isn’t dark enough, you can apply again in 8 hours.
I found that nothing got stained, clothes or hands and they did include a set of gloves for application.
This was a mess free, safe and natural way to get the tanned look I was hoping for.
I highly recommend this quality tanning system to anyone looking for a reliable self tanner.

Why I love Argan Oil and a Review of ISA Professional’s Argan Oil

Share Button

2015-12-01 19.09.56ISAProfessionalEVAOArganOil3_1024x1024

Hi Friends!

I recently had the opportunity to try out and review ISA Professional’s Argan Oil.  I was thrilled because I had recently discovered Argan Oil and, having worked with ISA Professional before, I knew their products were of good quality.

Before I get into my experiences with this product, let me tell you why I love Argan Oil.

I first started using Argan Oil in my hair.  After a shower, I simply work 2-3 drops of it through my wet hair.

2-3 drops goes a long way….I have a lot of hair

The first thing 2015-12-03 13.01.04I noticed was how nice it felt in my hair, not oily at all.  As my hair dried, it was soft and manageable with very little frizz.  Every curly haired girl understands the excitement of having your hair dry without being frizzy.

As time went on, I found my hair was getting shinier and softer.  I have to admit, I was worried that putting oil in my hair would make it greasy however my worrying was all for nothing.  My hair has never looked or felt healthier.   I have been able to cut down drastically on what products I use when styling.

I next learned that you can use Argan Oil for other things.  Argan Oil is great for your dry flaky skin.  When you rub it into dry hands, your hands feel softer and look better after just a few uses.

Argan Oil is also a great moisturizer for your face.  It helps bring out that youthful glow and it will not leave your skin feeling oily.

You can also rub Argan Oil into your finger nail beds for stronger, healthier nails.

In Morroco, they actually eat Argan Oil by dipping bread into it or using it in couscous.  It is supposed to be very good for your system and lowers your cholesterol.

As you can see, Argan Oil is a very versatile product.  I have used it for my hair, nails and skin for awhile now and I am very happy with the results.

ISA Professional’s EVAO or Extra Virgin Argan Oil is a high quality product.  It is 100% Organic with no additives.  I find it has a very pleasant natural scent and it feels luxurious in my hair and on my skin.  I love that the bottle has a dropper lid for even easier application.  I highly recommend this to anyone looking for healthier hair and skin.

For more information and to purchase EVAO from ISA Professional, you can visit their Amazon product page here or check out their website.

ISA did not disappoint me with this new product.  They continue to deliver high quality, luxurious beauty products that make you feel beautiful.

Secret Clinical Antiperspirant

Stress Sweat!

Everybody gets it, nobody talks about it.

There is nothing worse than that feeling you get when you are in the middle of a big presentation and you feel yourself starting to sweat.  You try to focus on what you need to do but your mind keeps nagging “am I sweating? Oh no I am sweating! Does it show? Don’t raise your arms!  I hope it doesn’t smell.”  You find yourself wishing the floor would just swallow you up.

Recently, I was given the opportunity to review Secret Clinical Antiperspirant Clear Gel for free thanks to Secret and BzzAgent  I was a bit skeptical about how powerful this would be in stressful situations.

I decided to put it to the test on a day where I had a big meeting.  I had to give a presentation in a warm room and then drive home for 3 hours.

I got to my meeting and felt pretty good.  First of all, the antiperspirant went on dry and smelled nice and light.  As my presentation time drew near, my heart started racing but I was not sweating.

I gave my presentation without incident and survived the rest of my meeting.  In the car on the way home, I realized I still felt fresh and sweat free.  Secret Clinical actually lasted all day, over 12 hours without giving up!

Secret Clinical Antiperspirant delivers 4X the protection of a regular antiperspirant and it shows.

Next time I am faced with a stressful situation, I will rest easy knowing I am protected from the dreaded Stress Sweat!

Clumps Be Gone

Share Button

Hi Friends!

I hope you are doing well these days.

I recently had the awesome opportunity to test and review one of COVERGIRL’s new mascaras for free thanks to COVERGIRL and  BZZAgent.

I choose to review Clump Crusher (the green one) because clumps are something that drive me crazy about mascara so I really wanted to put it to the test.  My expectations of mascara are high.  I don’t want clumps and I want the mascara to transform my pale, almost invisible, short lashes into long, full, luscious lashes.

bare lashes2015-09-17 07.36.52

As you can see, I was not kidding when I said I have invisible eye lashes.  The picture on the right shows me with the Clump Crusher mascara applied.  What a difference!

I have not been this excited about a mascara in a very long time!  I have always had to compromise.  Either have no clumps but no length or fullness or have full, long lashes full of clumps.  Clump Crusher delivers everything I need it to!  I love it so much that I went out and bought it for my daughter to try.  She loves it too.

Mascara has always been hard for me to take off and Clump Crusher comes off with simple soap and water, no fussing around.  I have been so happy with it and using it daily that I have yet to try the other formulas in the line but I look forward to doing so.

Spread Love,

As you can see, going mascara free is not an option for me!

Boustise Breast-Enhancment Cream

Share Button

2015-09-03 11.04.57Hi Friends.
Recently, I was given the opportunity to review a bust enhancement cream called Boustise.

Ok so I have had two children and I am now closer to 40 than 35…needless to say, elasticity is a bit of a memory.
I have always been happy with my bust size however I have noticed over the years that my breasts do not feel as full as they did when I was 20.
I honestly did not know what to expect from this Breast Enhancement Cream.

My first impression was that I LOVED the packaging.  The bottle is very pretty and was bigger than I expected.
I used this product for over a month before reviewing.
Firstly, the smell of the cream is very pleasant.  The cream is not greasy and absorbs well into my skin.  I did not experience any irritation or rash with use and it had a pleasant tingly feel to it.

Using it is easy, just rub a small amount all over your breasts in the morning and evening.
I was quite surprised to find that after only a week, my breasts felt heavier.
I had recently lost weight and of course I lost it from my bust first so my favourite bra did not quite fit any longer.  (before picture).  After 4 weeks of use, I found that I could once again fill the cups.  I increased by at least a cup size in 4 weeks.
There were some unexpected bonuses.  My skin is not only more elastic, it looks younger.  I had a few stretch marks on the sides and now I can’t even see them.

2015-09-05 10.10.51 2015-10-11 11.51.14

I decided to put this cream further to the test.  I stopped using it completely.  After a week, I noticed a difference once again.  My breasts were less full.  I use it a few times a week to maintain the results I achieved.
I have to say that this cream really does deliver excellent results.  I would recommend this to anyone looking for fuller, larger breasts.

If you would like to purchase Boustise for yourself or learn more about the ingredients, you can visit the product page here: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B008A0SH3E/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_4

I know talking about the lovely things happening to our bodies as we age is not exactly fun however I do feel the need to share good products that really work with you….we are all in this together!

EC Technology Bluetooth Keyboard Review

Share Button

 

2015-09-08 16.50.15 Hi Friends

Today I am excited to share with you a product I recently had the opportunity to test.  This is EC Technology’s bluetooth keyboard.

This is a photo of it all folded up.  It is one of the most compact yet well made bluetooth keyboards I have seen.  I have been in search of one for my tablet for awhile but I was really turned off by the silicone keypads that have flooded the market.  I just don’t care for how they feel under my fingers as I type.

2015-09-08 16.50.34This keyboard is quite sturdy with a metal case enclosing a keyboard much like my laptop.  The keys are very responsive and my fingers fly over them.

I was amazed with how quickly it paired with my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.  All I had to do was turn on my bluetooth on the tablet and press FN and C to turn the bluetooth on the keyboard on and before you can say Bob’s your uncle, I was typing away.  This will allow me to get a lot more use out of my tablet.

2015-09-08 16.49.50Here is a photo of the keyboard with my tablet so you can get an idea of the size.  My tablet is a 7″ screen.

This keyboard boasts up to 5 hours of usage on one battery charge.  The battery is lithium which means it has no memory so you can charge it whenever you like.  Unused, this battery will hold a charge for several weeks.

If you would like to learn more about this product, you can visit the company website at iectechnology.com or check out the product listing on Amazon at http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B010SDLM50?redirect=true&ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_0

Yalmeh Super Youth Eye Cream

Share Button


20150803_112557

Hi Friends

I am please to bring you a review of an amazing eye cream that I recently had the opportunity to test out.

Yalmeh Super Youth Eye Cream is one of the better anti-aging products I have ever tried.
The ingredients are natural, no fillers or dyes.
The packaging is so beautiful. I love the box and the design of the tube. It is a generous size compared to other eye creams I have tried.
I used this eye cream under my eyes every night for a month to evaluate the results on my skin.
I have to say, I really like what I see. My skin around my eyes feels firmer, like when you have gone to the gym regularly after a period of not working out. Your body feels firmer and healthier. That is how my skin around my eyes feels.
You can feel the cream working but not in a sting of a thousand bees sort of way but rather a gentle tightening. My skin never showed any irritation over this even in the beginning.
The cream has a natural scent, you can tell it is just the scent of the ingredients.
My smile “crinkles” around my eyes (I am almost 40) are less noticeable. I have been asked if I am my daughters’ sister more than once lately.
If you want to feel good about using an antiaging product, this is the one for you.

If you would like to try Yalmeh Super Youth Eye Cream for yourself, you can purchase it here:
